Amazon on Wednesday became the latest company to announce that it will be removing Washington Redskins merchandise for sale while the team considers a name change.
“With the announcement from the Washington team and the NFL, we are removing products with the team’s name and logo from our stores,” a spokesperson told CNBC. “Failure to properly close or delete all restricted product listings from your inventory may result in deactivation.”
Amazon joins Nike, Walmart, Target and Dick’s Sporting Goods among companies to remove Redskins merchandise for sale online while the team reviews its nickname.
The Redskins announced Friday that they will “undergo a thorough review of the team’s name” amid renewed pressure. ESPN’s Adam Schefter previously reported that a change of the nickname is considered likely, and citing a source, Schefter reported Wednesday that based on discussions about the nickname, Washington is planning to have no Native American imagery. As of now, Washington plans to keep its colors burgundy and gold, a source told ESPN’s John Keim.
